FORMULA
Limit n->infinity a(n)^(1/n^2) = r^(2*r^2/(1-2*r)) = 2.3520150420944489879258119..., where r = 0.70350607643066243... (see A220359) is the root of the equation (1-r)^(2*r-1) = r^(2*r). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Mar 03 2014
EXAMPLE
L.g.f.: L(x) = 2*x + 10*x^2/2 + 272*x^3/3 + 24226*x^4/4 + 12053252*x^5/5 +...
where exponentiation yields A206157:
exp(L(x)) = 1 + 2*x + 7*x^2 + 102*x^3 + 6261*x^4 + 2423430*x^5 + 6686021554*x^6 +...
Illustration of initial terms:
a(1) = 1^1 + 1^3 = 2;
a(2) = 1^1 + 2^3 + 1^5 = 10;
a(3) = 1^1 + 3^3 + 3^5 + 1^7 = 272;
a(4) = 1^1 + 4^3 + 6^5 + 4^7 + 1^9 = 24226;
a(5) = 1^1 + 5^3 + 10^5 + 10^7 + 5^9 + 1^11 = 12053252; ...
